Gibbs Farm Unprecedented

“On a recent trip to New Zealand I was forced to meditate on the term ‘A Big Fish in a Small Sea,’” award-winning Sydney-based architect and designer Jon King writes. “For one I caught the biggest snapper I had ever had the pleasure of catching, but perhaps more importantly I was privileged to experience some quite remarkable works of architecture and art in what is comparatively a small country with a small population in a very big ocean. Alan Gibbs is perhaps one of New Zealand’s biggest fish, and here on his 1000 acre farm he has gone about creating one of the world’s most celebrated sculpture parks where a collection of the world’s foremost artists have created site specific works on an unprecedented scale.”
